Canon PowerShot SD110 Digital Camera Review


With its stainless steel body, the Canon PowerShot SD110 provides a substantial camera in a compact and durable frame. The 3.3 megapixel camera is stylish and slim, but heavier than it looks. It is small enough to fit into a pocket, but has enough...

Owners Opinion: Canon PowerShot SD110 (sport_160, 19 Apr 05)


Lovely little camera. Bought it to use as a webcam frist, but have discovered that it really is not a bad camera. My other camera is a Nikon D70, so I judge this camera as for the market it is intended. I keep it with me all the time, it's the same...
